Can't eat this while breastfeeding? Which are true and which are false?

The new mother thought it was over after unloading the goods. Who knows, breastfeeding is even more torturous than pregnancy: "What, you can't eat this, and you can't do that?" It's time for the annual scientific baby raising PK breastfeeding legend, what about the PK results? Ask and answer quickly, new mothers are no longer confused. 1. Can I drink alcohol while breastfeeding? Answer: No. Alcohol can enter breast milk without hindrance, and the baby can be excited, sleep disturbance, and damage the organ system. Don't take chances, it's 100% safe not to drink. 2. Can I smoke while breastfeeding? Answer: No. Tobacco and alcohol, regardless of family, have the same lethality. In addition to active smoking, second-hand and third-hand smoke can harm your baby. One word: quit! 3. Can't drink coffee while breastfeeding? Answer: in moderation. The concept of an appropriate amount is that the intake of caffeine is less than 200 mg/day. Take a famous coffee chain as an example (pictured for reference), do new mothers know what the upper limit is? Or choose decaf, sacrifice a little taste, and be more secure (don't ask how I know, just drink it). If the intake of caffeine is greater than 200mg/day, the baby can easily become irritable, fussy, sleep well, and cry. Preterm infants and newborns are especially sensitive. It's best to leave a little time between feedings, or drink after feedings. The same goes for caffeinated foods such as cola, black tea, and chocolate. 4. Can I dye my hair perm while breastfeeding? Answer: Yes. There are some chemical components in hair dyes that enter the blood through the scalp skin, but the amount is very small, and even fewer enter the milk through the blood, which can be ignored. There is also no data to show any adverse effects of hair coloring while breastfeeding. However, if the scalp of new mothers is damaged, they should not dye or perm their hair to avoid infection or other side effects. When dyeing your own hair, firstly, you should choose regular products, secondly, pay attention to ventilation, thirdly, wear special gloves, and fourthly, rinse your hair thoroughly after dyeing. 5. Can manicure and makeup be done during breastfeeding? Answer: Yes. Just don't let your baby chew on your manicured fingers or rub your makeup face. 6. Can I eat gas-producing food during breastfeeding? Answer: Yes. It is possible, but not absolute, that the baby is also bloated after the mother eats gas. Some babies may respond, while others are fine. Then try it and see if you can eat it and see how your baby reacts. Of course, don't eat if you feel uncomfortable. 7. Can I exercise while breastfeeding? Answer: Yes. Moderate-intensity exercise will not increase the lactic acid concentration of breast milk; high-intensity exercise will temporarily increase the lactic acid concentration in breast milk, and it will return to normal after a short rest. Exercise if you want to, and don't use it as an excuse if you don't want to. 8. Can I take X-rays during breastfeeding? Answer: Yes. A normal dose of X-ray examination is only a momentary thing, it will not remain in the body, and it will not have any effect on breast milk. There is no need to worry about contrast agents injected through blood vessels, magnetic resonance imaging, and B-ultrasound. Only when a radioisotope scan is required, consult a doctor before deciding whether to do it or not. 9. Can I have sex while breastfeeding? Answer: You can wait until the mother's body fully recovers. Full recovery here, 2 months after vaginal delivery and 3 months after caesarean section. And one very important thing: be sure to use contraception! 10 Can I get vaccinated while breastfeeding? Answer: Yes. The mother has been vaccinated, which can indirectly protect the baby, such as the flu vaccine. Smallpox and yellow fever vaccines are excluded. 11. Can I take medicine during breastfeeding? Answer: Follow your doctor's order. Inform the doctor in advance, the doctor will use the medicine as appropriate according to the mother's physical condition, and you can follow the doctor's advice. At the same time, carefully read the instructions for breastfeeding before taking the medicine. In a word, general drugs will not cause much problems, but psychotropic drugs, hormone drugs, and anti-tumor drugs are not suitable for breastfeeding. 12. Can I eat fried food during breastfeeding? Answer: eat less. Three deadly sins: too high calories; not easy to digest; affecting the quality of milk. I wish the mothers to eat whatever they want within the allowable range, and they can only breastfeed when they are in a good mood, right?
